Procedure for Making and Responding To Claims of Copyright Infringement. We will respond to claims of copyright infringement, and will promptly process and investigate notices of alleged infringement by third-parties and will take appropriate actions under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”), Title 17, United States Code, Section 512(c)(2), where applicable. In keeping with the DMCA, notifications of claimed copyright infringement by third-parties should be sent to our designated agent noted below (the “Designated Agent”). If you believe that your copyrighted work has been infringed under U.S. copyright law and is accessible on the Website, please notify us by contacting the Designated Agent.
In order to give effective notification of a claim of copyright infringement by a third-party under the DMCA, you must send a written communication to the Designated Agent that includes substantially the following: (1) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (2) identification of the copyrighted work, or, if multiple copyrighted works are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works that are claimed to have been infringed; (3) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material on the Website; (4) information reasonably sufficient to permit the Company to contact the complaining party, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an e-mail address at which the complaining party may be contacted; (5) a statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that neither the copyright owner, nor its agent nor the law has authorized the use of the material in the manner complained of; and (6) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
The Designated Agent for notice of claims of copyright infringement can be reached at:
Sales Operation Leadership Council
Attn: Designated Copyright Agent
P.O. Box 5206
Kendall Park, New Jersey 08824
If a valid notification of alleged copyright infringement is received, we will remove or disable access to the material identified in the notice as being infringing or as being the subject of infringing activity, and take reasonable steps to notify the alleged infringer that it has removed or disabled access to this material. Please note that under the DMCA, an alleged infringer has the right to submit a counter-notice to have the allegedly-infringing material re-published on the Website. Should that occur you will receive notification from us and, should you wish to have the material subsequently removed, you will be required to file a copyright infringement claim in a United States federal court.
Additionally, a claimant who makes a misrepresentation concerning copyright infringement may be liable for any damages, including costs and attorneys' fees, incurred by the alleged infringer who is injured by such misrepresentation as a result of reliance upon such misrepresentation in removing or disabling access to the material or activity claimed to be infringing or in replacing the removed material or ceasing to disable access to it.

Welcome. The information below explains how the Sales Operation Leadership Council (“SOLC” or the “Company”) collects, uses, and discloses information collected via our website, located at (the “Website”), as well as information collected offline, such as at our events and summits. By ensuring that you are aware of and understand our Privacy Notice, we can provide you with a better informed experience. Please take a moment to read the following notice to learn how we handle your personal information.
The Company ("we" or "us" or “our”) understands that individuals and companies with whom we network, conduct business, and who share their information with us, value their privacy. We are committed to taking reasonable steps to protect your privacy online and offline, as well as to manage your information responsibly. This Privacy Notice is intended to notify you of our online privacy practices, the type of information that may be collected and stored, how the information is used, with whom the information may be shared, what choices are available to you regarding the collection, use and distribution of the information, what kind of security procedures are in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of information under our control, and who to contact with questions or concerns.
By using the Website and/or by contacting us and providing any personal information, you consent to the collection, transfer, storage, disclosure and use of that information by us in accordance with this Privacy Notice. If we decide to change our Privacy Notice, we will post those changes on this page.
Why We Collect Information. We collect personal information because it helps us connect our members, typically executives from small to mid-tier life science companies, with each other, and with other industry participants and to facilitate our services and events. For example, if you wish to participate in SOLC as a member or sponsor, you may be asked to provide contact information such as your name, title, company, email address and phone number. We also may correlate your personal information obtained from you with information from other sources. For example, if you provide us with your personal information as part of an application or enrollment process, we may cross-check that against information that might be otherwise available through other sources and entities for verification and quality control purposes.
What Information We Collect. The following generally describes the type of information we may collect about you. Those who wish to communicate with us but do not wish to provide personally identifiable information online may contact us through the address or phone numbers provided on our Website. However, you should note that if you contact us by phone or via postal mail, you may still be submitting personally identifiable information to us.
How We Collect Information. We collect information in three primary ways:
You Give Us Information: We collect information from you when you submit it to us through our Website or via email, postal mail, telephone, facsimile or at a SOLC event.
We Collect Information Automatically: We automatically collect certain types of information when you visit our Website. For example, we automatically collect various types of technical information when you use our Website as otherwise described in this Privacy Notice.
We Collect Information from Other Sources: We may obtain information about you from outside sources. For example, we may obtain commercially available information about you from third parties or purchase e-mail lists from third parties for advertising and marketing purposes. We may also receive information from third-parties who provide services for us through web-beacons and other technologies as otherwise discussed in this Privacy Notice.
Information You Submit To Us. We do not automatically collect personally identifiable information unless you voluntarily input or submit this information, such as during a registration or application process, when you submit questions or comments, request information or enter into an agreement with us. Should you voluntarily provide us with personally identifiable information, you consent to our use of it in accordance with this Privacy Notice. If you create an account, you will be asked to provide a username, email address, date of birth, and may be asked to provide additional information for identification and verification purposes. If you register for an account using via LinkedIn, Twitter or another third-party authentication process, you authorize SOLC to access certain personally identifiable information in your account pursuant to that third-party’s terms and conditions of use.
Information Collected During General Website Browsing. Even if you do not submit personal information through the Website, we gather navigational information about where visitors go on the Website and information about the technical efficiencies of our Website and services (i.e., time to connect to the Website, time to download pages, etc.). This information allows us to see which areas of our Website are most visited and helps us better understand the user experience. This information also helps us improve the quality of the Website by recognizing and delivering more of the features, areas, events and services our visitors prefer. In this process of gathering information, we may collect personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information (for example, domain type, browser type and version, service provider and IP address, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and click-stream data). We may also create and use electronic records to compile statistics about how our visitors collectively interact with our Website.
Shared local objects (commonly referred to as “FLASH cookies”) are cookies that are placed on your computer that are not removed through normal browser management tools. We will not use FLASH cookies in a manner inconsistent with the purposes for which they were designed unless you are specifically notified that we intend to use them for a specific function or service.
Server Logs. A web “server log” is a record of activity created by a computer that delivers certain webpages to your browser. Certain activities that you perform on our Website may record information in server logs. For example, if you enter a search term into a search box located on the Website, the server log may record the search term, the link you clicked on to bring you to our Website and/or information about your browser, such as your IP address and the cookies set on your browser.
Search Queries on Our Website. We may provide you with options to search for information on our Website. If you enter information in a search query box, we may store that information and we may aggregate that information with other information we may have about the browser and/or IP address from which the search query originated.
Surveys. From time to time, we may request information from users via surveys. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose any information to us. Information requested may include contact information, demographic information and other personal information. The aggregate, non-personally identifiable information collected from all survey respondents may be shared with third-parties who sponsor such surveys, if applicable. If your information gathered via a survey will be used in a manner different from that described in this Privacy Notice, such use will be detailed in the survey instructions.
How We Use the Information We Collect. We use the information we collect in a variety of ways to provide our events and services. Generally, using all of the above mentioned, and similar type tools and methods, we may collect, aggregate, and use information from or about you, such as data about the type of browser and operating system used, your geographical location, which webpages you view, the time and duration of your visits to our Website, the search queries you may use on this Website and any other submissions you may make, whether you clicked on any items or links on the Website, whether you have clicked on any links in any emails sent from us, or third-parties on our behalf, whether you have chosen to opt-out of certain services or information sharing, and whether you have viewed or ordered certain products or services.
We use the information we collect internally in our business for many business purposes, such as to: (i) provide the Website, and our events and services; (ii) analyze trends and conduct research about improving our online and offline offerings; (iii) provide support and respond to questions from members, sponsors, Website visitors (“users”) and other inquiries; (iv) improve our Website, events and/or services; (v) learn about our users’ needs; (vi) contact users for research, informational, and marketing purposes, including customizing our Website for you based upon your information and browsing habits; (vii) track event attendance, traffic patterns and Website usage; (viii) enable online communications and provide customer service and technical support with respect to such requests; (ix) correlate information with other commercially available information to identify demographics and preferences to assist us and our customers in our research and marketing efforts; (x) provide specific relevant marketing, promotional, or other information to you; (xi) address information security and/or privacy practices, network functioning, engineering, and troubleshooting issues; (xii) investigate claims and/or legal actions, violations of law or agreements, and compliance with relevant applicable laws and legal process; (xiii) comply with law, or based on our good faith belief that it is necessary to conform or comply with the law, or otherwise to disclose information to prevent fraud, to cooperate with police and other governmental authorities, or to protect the rights, property or safety of visitors to the Website, our partners or customers, or the public; and (xiv) process or engage in a sale of all or part of our business, or if we go through a reorganization or merger.
We may also share personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information externally with our members (at your request), affiliates, sponsors and business partners, as well as with other third-party service providers who help us provide operational services for the Website and our business, which might include, but is not necessarily limited to: business entities that provide e-mail address management and communication contact services, network equipment and application management providers and hosting entities, credit and debit card payment gateways and processors and the issuing and acquiring banks involved in the funds settlement procedures necessary to charge your cards or financial accounts, entities which obtain information such as demographic information which might be aggregated with information we have about you, judicial, administrative and/or legal or financial accounting providers in the event that information must be reviewed or released in response to civil and/or criminal investigations, claims, lawsuits, or if we are subject to judicial or administrative process (such as a subpoena) to release your information or to prosecute or defend legal actions, and other service providers which may be involved in the other types of services and activities otherwise discussed in this Privacy Notice.
We may also use your personally identifiable information to contact you in ways other than e-mail or regular mail, such as via telephone contact or facsimile. All use of personally identifiable information will be as permitted by applicable law.
Business Transfers. If Company or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Company goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Company may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this Privacy Notice.
Your Choices about the Information We Collect. If you do not consent to the way in which we may use your personal information, please do not submit any personal information to us. If you do not wish to receive emails about events and other promotions or activities from us, click the unsubscribe link located in our emails or opt out in your account profile. If you do not wish to receive other marketing materials from us and/or if you do not want us to share your personal information with other entities as stated in this Privacy Notice, please provide us with your exact name and address and advise us that you wish to opt-out for information sharing or receiving information from us or both as the case may be.

Privacy of Children Who Visit the Website. We recognize the importance of children's safety and privacy. The Website is not designed to attract children, and is not intended for use by any children under the age of 18. We do not request, or knowingly collect, any personally identifiable information from children under the age of 18.

Visitors to the Website Outside of the United States. If you are visiting the Website from a location outside of the United States, your connection will be through and to servers located in the United States. All information you receive from the Website will be created on servers located in the United States, and all information you provide will be maintained on web servers and systems located within the United States. The data protection laws in the United States and other countries might not be as those in your country. By using this Website and/or submitting information to us, you specifically consent to the transfer of your information to the United States to the facilities and servers we use, and to those with whom we may share your information.
Updating Personal Information. We prefer to keep your personal information accurate and up-to-date. If you would like to update or change your personal information in your profile, please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Links. For your convenience, the Website may contain links to other websites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices, advertising, products, or the content of such other websites. None of the links should be deemed to imply that we endorse or have any affiliation with the links.
Security. We believe in providing a safe and secure experience for all of our online visitors. To that end, we have implemented security measures to protect the information collected from you. We maintain reasonable physical and electronic safeguards designed to limit unauthorized access to your personally identifiable information, and to protect you against the criminal misuse of that information.
We use data encryption technology when transferring and receiving your sensitive personal information, such as during an application process. For example, in your transactions submitted by you through the website, a solid key icon or a locked padlock icon at the lower portion of your web browser window confirms the Website is secured through Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). Pages requesting personal information should always have one of these icons. You can also confirm your data is being encrypted by looking at the URL line of your browser (the place where you type website addresses). When accessing a secure server, the Website address will change from "http" to "https".
While we use the foregoing security measures to protect your information, please note that no data transmitted over the Internet or stored and utilized for business purposes can be guaranteed to be completely secure. No security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We cannot guarantee that only authorized persons will view your information. We cannot ensure that information you share on the Website will not become publicly available. You can reduce these risks by using common sense security practices such as choosing a strong password, using different passwords for different services, and using up to date antivirus software.
